Gabrielle Ray

'Gabrielle Ray said, 'I am always dancing; I love it! When I don't dance, I sing. What else is there to do?'

Gabrielle Ray – Betty – The Globe – Saturday 30th October 1915


The Theatre

 Miss Gabrielle Ray in “Betty.”

 

There is all the charm of romance and much of the sparkle of real humour in “Betty,” thanks quite as much to the attractive grace of Miss Winifred Barnes as to the efforts of authors and composers, and to the bright comedy of Mr. Tom Walls as Lord Playne. Last night there was a new comer to the cast in Miss Gabrielle Ray, who, in returning to Daly’s found many friends to welcome her reappearance. She was always a delightful dancer, but Miss Ray has gained in her art as an actress, and both her singing and speaking voice has improved in quality. Her rentrée was a real success. All the fun and alertness of Mr. Laurie de Frece, the boyish sprit of Roy Royston, the “heavy father” efforts of Mr. C. M. Lowne, and the easy methods of Mr. Donald Calthrop as the young lord who wins and finally woos, help to make of the musical play a very fresh and amusing performance.
